Wow! Time for another announcement. Not much in the bin. But what’s there is included below. I decided to send this today because of all the 2s that are in the date.
Next announcement on or about March 6. So if you have something to share with your fellow members send it along to this address and it will be shared in the next announcement. Remember, keep it simple.
Board members are trying to improve communication to member about shows, venues, and opportunities.
The WAAL web site has been redesigned to allow members to sign up for venues online. We are in the last stages of configuring the new options and hope to have this completed, with instructions, by the next meeting.
Please consider posting news of your participation in local shows or galleries on WAAL’s Facebook page, Worthington Area Art League. You are allowed to post to the public or the members page. Our Facebook administrator, Katie Crowley, will approve your post.
“Like” the Facebook page for Worthington Area Art League and you will get notices of the updates.
The Dublin Art League collected and publishes calls for entry and grant solicitations. WALL AND DAL board members met to find synergies and DAL has offered to allow email newsletter sign up to non-members. Attached are instructions to subscribe to their email list of opportunities

>>>> Check out the latest issue of The Avant-Garde, a periodic journal that I publish online. This month we take a look at some of my recent work including a new direction in mixed media assemblage, oil paintings, and photography. I share a few selections from over 7,000 pictures my family and I took during a vacation to Alaska last summer. The images give a sense of the landscape and the culture in America’s 49th State. On the final page I always include listings of upcoming art exhibits and performances in “All Around the Town and Beyond”. And remember, you can follow my work on social media and purchase reproductions through Fine Art America by clicking the icons on the last page. Thanks for reading.
